Oprah Winfrey‘s BFF Gayle King has won the Internet by cutting up a thong and wearing it as a camisole.
The “CBS This Morning” cohost appeared on camera Friday wearing a low-cut pink dress and what appeared to be a purple lace camisole. But as King revealed on her
page, the cami — surprise! — was actually a thong.
“Fashion tip! Thong underwear which I hate can be used as a cami — just cut out the crotch! @therealadamsays approves!! Swipe right to see creative use of panties,” she wrote to her 300K followers (Adam Glassman is the creative director of O magazine, where King is editor-at-large).
Instagram comments ranged from “TMI” to “You go girl!” and “Whose panties are those if you don’t like wearing them?”

King has made notable fashion choices in the past — in December, Winfrey sent a note to King which read, “Plz tell Gayle I’m on treadmill & it’s hard to focus w/the circus around your neck,” after King wore a large, chunky necklace on air.
King posted a photo of the message and her look on Instagram, writing of Oprah’s comment, “I think she’s wrong. Thoughts?” Fans were divided, calling the necklace both “lovely” and “hideous.”
And in January, King wore a mustard yellow-and-white dress in honor of the 5-year anniversary of “CBS This Morning,” a yearly tradition since she joined the show in 2012.
King is reportedly style conscious, arriving to work at 5:30am to select her color scheme for the day. “Since Gayle is so colorful and she likes to wear a lot of jewelry, we as a news-oriented program sometimes have to ask her to tone it down…” a source told Fashionista in 2015. King also has a stylist who plans her outfits three weeks ahead.
Whether or not you approve of King’s DIY look, she clearly has a backup career in fashion.
